Help us meet our goal of providing at least 1000 meals to the Hoboken Shelter! *not mandatory

Donation Goal: $5,000

The Hoboken Shelter, established in 1982, is owned and operated by the Communities of Faith for Housing, Inc., a non-profit housing corporation made up of ministers and laity from houses of worship, as well as several Hoboken community leaders.

Mission Statement:

The Hoboken Shelter’s mission is to be a community partnership that transforms lives by providing meals for the hungry, shelter for the homeless, and services to support people to become housed.


The Hoboken Shelter’s goal is to assist homeless men and women in developing the skills needed to gain employment, achieve independence, and re-integrate into the community.  The ultimate goal is to end homelessness one person at a time!
